BOISE -- The Aryan Nations once again wants to call north Idaho its world headquarters.

More than a decade after the neo-Nazi Aryan Nations headquarters were demolished in northern Idaho, there are reports of a new compound being built nearby in Kootenai County.

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center's Intelligence Report, 33-year-old Shaun Winkler says he plans to allow families affiliated with the Klan or Aryan Nations to build residences on the property.

The original compound was auctioned off when they lost a $6.3 million civil judgment to two people who sued after being attacked by members of the group.
